'''About May’s classes''':
 
 
 
'''Find My Past''' is a great site for English research. It is a subscription site but may be used free of charge at the Family History Center. It includes the complete 1841 1911 census, parish records, migration and military records and many other collections that will be helpful in learning more about your English ancestors.
 
 
 
On May 3 we are especially fortunate to have A. Boyd Nielsen, presenting his informative class on '''Danish Probate records'''. An accredited genealogist through ICAPGen , he has been involved in genealogical research for over 43 years. He specializes in Scandinavian, Germanic, British, and North American research.
 
 
 
The '''Basic Danish Research''' workshop being taught by Anita Olsen will continue this month on Saturday, May 5.
 
 
 
'''RootsMagic''' basics guides you through essential steps in starting to use RootsMagic, and answers questions for those who are already using the program.
 
 
 
Genealogical '''Websites''' abound. Learn which ones will speed your research and provide the information you are seeking in the ''Successful Internet Researching - Where to Start'' class.
 
 
 
Two classes will be offered on '''Indexing'''. The basic indexing class ''How to Get Started Indexing'' is essential for anyone who is beginning, or needs to improve their success rate. It also serves as a basis for the Indexing 1940 Census Workshop. The handout for the ''How to Get Started Indexing'' class is available on the FamilySearch wiki. To access the Center’s site on the LDS Wiki, go to: [https://www.familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Main_Page https://www.familysearch.org/learn/wiki] Enter "Brigham City Utah Family History Center/Classes". Cursor to the class link. Click on the link to be taken to the class handout.<br>
 
 
 
'''Fold 3''' is an excellent site which focuses on U. S. Military Records. Originally known as Footnote, the new name derives from the American flag folding protocol.
 
 
 
The '''England Jurisdiction 1851''' project simplifies research by consolidating data from many finding aids into a single searchable repository. Its features include contiguous parish and radius search lists and relevant jurisdictions as they existed in 1851. This easy to use site is a great tool for English research. <br><br><br>
